MTV announces more 2010 MTV Movie Award goodies for Twilight fans
By Kim Palacios
HollywoodNews.com: It just keeps coming—good news for Twilight fans from the 2010 MTV Movie Award camp. This morning, we got new news of two Twilight developments: a new “Eclipse” clip to be presented at the awards by Kristen, Rob, and Taylor and a contest opportunity to see the show in person.
If you watched the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, you might recall the exclusive clip for “New Moon”. The world premiere clip turned out to be a huge catalyst in terms of building excitement for the film given its focus on then-unseen footage alluding to the Edward/Bella/Jacob love triangle. The other huge upside was the action element, which, at that point was somewhat new to the films. When an unknowing Bella warned Jacob to “run” from the wolves moments before he himself phased into one, fans got a glimpse of the first of the high-tech special effects.
Also announced this morning was news that MTV will give away tickets to attend the awards to a Twitter follower on top of her game. To be eligible, the winner has to retweet a certain hash tag from MTV (#MTVtix) when they see it appear each day this week . Certainly, MTV would like it to trend, and sending a lucky fan to the awards will be a small price to pay for the promo. Full details on how to become eligible are on MTV.com.
These developments come in the wake of other recent news joyfully received by Twihards . Two weeks ago, we learned of finalist noms for Rob, Kristen, Taylor, Anna and “New Moon” in multiple categories. Last week, news broke of Chaske Spencer’s selection as MTV International red carpet correspondence.
